As we begin the new school year, we wanted to provide you with updated protocols related to the reporting of positive COVID-19 cases as a result of recent changes in guidance from the CDC. Spring ISD is not under a mask mandate this school year, but masks are allowed and discretionary based on student and staff health needs.
Within the linked document provided in this email, you will find information related to both student and staff reporting procedures and quarantine protocols.
Please review the complete document linked here for students and here for staff members, which both contain a link to the COVID Positive Test Form that will need to be completed for any student or staff member who reports positive test results.
Spring ISD is also monitoring cases of monkeypox in the community and surrounding areas.
Although monkeypox is a disease caused by a virus not commonly seen in the United States, cases have been steadily rising across the country over the past few months. This includes Houston and the surrounding areas. For more information on symptoms and how to prevent the spread, click here.
We will continue to monitor developments and provide health-related updates as needed. Our focus will remain on educating our students and accelerating their learning so we can ensure a successful school year for our scholars.
It will take everyone working together. Every Student, Every Teacher, Every Day.
